The Central Government on Thursday notified appointment of Justice Savanur Vishwajith Shetty as Additional Judge of Karnataka High Court for a period of two years.

The recommendation for elevation was made by the Supreme Court Collegium on 25th March, 2019. On the said recommendation, the Central Government took objection and the name of the Judge was remitted back to the Supreme Court Collegium for reconsideration and accused the judge of having nexus with underworld & land mafia which indulged in extortion.

The Collegium noted that as regards to Shri Savanur Vishwajith Shetty, his name has been sent back by the Department of Justice to the Collegium for reconsideration with the following observations: “There is a complaint against Shri Savanur Vishwajith Shetty that he is having nexus with underworld and land mafia which indulged in extortion.

The Collegium has perused the complaint in this regard levelling allegations against Shri Savanur Vishwajith Shetty.
